The Use of Salt in Aquariums and Ponds
The Use of Salt in Aquariums and Ponds

I remember twenty years ago when I brought salt to a Koi pond and started to add it to the water, in order to clear a parasitism of Chilodonella. The owner stopped me and said “These are freshwater fish. What’re you doing?”

In the very early nineties, the use of Salt on fish diseases was not widely known. People had been using it for years but for parts of the fishkeeping mainstream, it was unknown.
